ANAM Musicians: Mozart & Allegri

Wed 27 March @ 15:00 - 16:00

$20 – $60

BRAVE NEW WORLDS: LIBERTÉ, ÉGALITÉ, FRATERNITÉ

In one of the most loved musical anecdotes, a fourteen-year-old Mozart arrives in Rome, hears the Vatican choir sing Allegri’s famous Miserere and rushes back to his lodgings to write it out from memory. Allegri’s motet was a novel artefact from the hierarchical old world ruled by church dogma. Just 10 years later Mozart would write his ‘Gran’ Partita for winds, a sonic expression of the new world guided be Enlightenment values: reason, equality, and the pursuit of individual happiness. Translated into music that meant a musical language that was less complex that the learned older styles. We’ve entered a brave new world.
